Get ready to be whisked away to a magical land full of sugar plum fairies, an army of nutcrackers and the infamous Mouse King. The Nutcracker, presented by Nevada Ballet Theatre, is returning to Reynolds Hall inside The Smith Center for a limited time engagement.
Based on the 1816 book by E.T.A. Hoffman titled "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King," The Nutcracker show first took place in Russia by the Kirov Ballet. Making its way across the world, The Nutcracker has become a holiday tradition. For more than a century, audiences have enjoyed the enchanting story of Clara, the Nutcracker and the Mouse King accompanied by music written by Tchaikovsky.
In his interpretation of the beloved seasonal classic, James Canfield, artistic director for the Nevada Ballet Theatre, will work magic -- which will include transforming the theater into a wonderland of moonlit snow and waltzing flowers. Don’t miss your chance to experience this winter wonderland of magic.
